Hearts a-Flutter

Valentine's Day has come and gone, but this new pattern for four little sewing projects called Be My Valentine from Country Stitches/With Thy Needle & Thread can keep that Valentine's Day feeling going a while longer. If you were the lucky recipient of a little Whitman's Sampler box of chocolates for the holiday, you can repurpose it to make a heartfelt sewing box for your sewing space. Tuck a spring-inspired pincushion, needlekeep and needle threader inside and embellish the box any way you like. How sweet!

As for my chocolate treat, my husband bought me a bag of these - Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares with raspberry filling. Is there any better combination than chocolate and raspberry? I'm trying to pace myself, only one or two a day, so they'll last a while. It's not easy!

Hope you had a sweet Valentine's Day!

I have always loved Brenda's patterns. I can't eat chocolate anymore, but when I could, I would be lucky if the bag lasted two days, lol.

I'm definitely having a chocolate fest! I love that stitching pattern! Such fun...and good use of an empty chocolate box!
